this is effective. is that a solid defense? >> people are going to look at about three years ago when plaxico burress was prosecuted and new york waved its fwlag of our no issuance policy ned, there's not a place stricter with gun rights. at the time mayor bloomberg and his other colleagues were saying we have the toughest laws in the country. look at the crime and how it's gone down. and some of the people are saying on the side of stopping this practice, hey, which one is it here. or is it other factories that have nothing to do with stopping people. what they're also saying is you're replacing one crime with another crime. because for go to somebody that's innocent of a crime, a high school student on his way to school, and frisk them and search them, it has a terrible impact in and of itself is a kind of crime. >> this not only would have ram if i indications for new york city, but other cities. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well.cit. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well. would this ruling have ramifications throughout? >> it will. and the r

election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to the right of rick perry back in the primary and i think this seemed to me a real indicator, tipping point moment whether paul would seize that opportunity and the fact he made the calculation he did seems to me to cement what i thought at first was possibly a conventional wisdom that cemented too quickly which is you'll see the gop establishment the conservative elite keep sort of coalition together on immigration reform. >> right. it's particularly interesting given that it was an opportunity to get to the right of marco rubio who is d

threat more seriously? i mean it seems we have a missile defense program the president is rebooting. but are we taking it seriously enough? >> well, i certainly think that the recent set of tests, the missile tests in december and then the nuclear test in february in which they appeared to have advanced their programs has created enough of a concern that i think we are taking it more seriously. last week there was an announcement of our intent to move to put 14 new interceptors, missile defense interceptors up which is a sign that we're taking this quite seriously now. but i think we should. >> all right. thank you very much, victor. we appreciate you taking the time tonight. >>> and now to a story we've been "outfront" on, the mysterious hanging death of 31-year-old yelled shane todd. he is from montana. but he was found dead in his apartment in singapore. the fbi is now investigating the case. secretary of state john kerry and attorney general eric hold rer asking questions of the singapore government. singapore police say todd committed suicide. todd's parents say it was murder.
california's proposition 8. the other, the united states versus windsor involves the defense of marriage act. it's actually about a love affair that began 50 years ago when edith windsor met thea entire. both highly educated they fell in love in a small bar in new york. they danced. th their dance continued through the decade each as thea contracted m.s. and edith took care of her. the couple left for canada where same-sex marriage was legal. for two years they were married. but when thea died this nation's laws did not recognize edith as thea's wife or beneficiary and so she was forced to pay hundreds of thousands in taxes that no straight couple will ever have to face. joining us now is victoria difrancesco sorto and msnbc latino and williams, an msnbc contributor. yeah, that's right. jimmy, i don't want to reduce a description of that beautiful relationship to the issue of taxes, but what is your view about how this will play out? will the supreme court find this particular section of the defense of marriage act unconstitutional? >> i think that they will, and you have to go back and look
defense secretary donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago began the long difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis all who played in a role in history who deserve our respect and appreciation. i'm joined again by documentary filmmaker, michael moore. michael, we will get into iraq quickly but the twitter verse is lit up by saying all you guys are so unfair because we know president obama doesn't control legislation, the republican house does. why don't you tell us, yes, republicans need do things, but is there more barack obama can do to use his bully bill put to push this issue forward? >> yes, and he knows it. social security happened because of franklin roosevelt. i don't think you can anyone anyone in congress back then responsible for social security. civil rights and voting rights act in '64 and '65 were because lindon johnson took the southern democrats and others literally by the ears and said, you will vote for this. people want it. h is right, end of story. go up there and vote for it. and obama, president obama, i really think he just has to get his game on here and start
